  • Wow! I think this is the best $2 (per person) we spent on a LV tour/ attraction. So much history and loved the hands-on walk throughs. As an fyi, some of the homes have stinky sewer smells to them....  more

  • The Clark County Museum in Henderson is a nice, quiet, relaxed little museum that offers a glimpse of old Las Vegas. Easy to walk through and read the interesting facts and history. A good getaway.....  more

  • Museum is certainly worth a visit for anyone interested in history and learning about the area. The exhibits in the museum are very well done. The structures on site that are open to tour are also...

  • Out of the way, but worth the trip, if you are interested in the history of the area, and to see furnishings, clothes and other artifacts from different decades. There are a number of actual homes that you can enter to see what it was like to live in at the time they were built. Also in the property are train cars, a station, wagons etc. It is a lovely gem, away from the strip. Also the admission is so small, it is quite a deal. 1 critique you cannot buy beverages in the gift shop. People are walking around outside in the heat, there should be at least water available for purchase, if not soda, coffee etc.
  • The Clark County Museum is a great place to go for a few hours in your in the area. It's only $2 for adults and $1 for kids and 55+. It's half indoors and half out doors. A lot of the little homes you can go in have AC. The little gift shop has great prices plus the staff is real friendly. There is a lot of wild life to see rabbits, lizard, bird, and insects.
  • This is a great museum so much info and facts a 2nd visit is a must, I'll be going many more times. Even in the summer months outdoor exhibits are walkable in the morning hours, I would suggest doing the outdoor part first. The indoor section has a little bit of everything about Clark County, and a great gift shop. The lighting at some of the indoor exhibits could be just a bit brighter. Have fun, I did. šŸ˜Ž
  • It was very inexpensive $2 for an adult or $1 for senior. The staff was very good at giving you information and maps. Many outdoor exhibits are in the heat so go in the evening or in the cool weather.
  • The Clark County Heritage Museum is awesome! It is exactly like stepping back into the past. The main museum building gives you a timeline of events from early Southern Nevada inhabitants and habitat to modern times, including a brief forray into steamboats in the Colorado River. Outside there are train cars, a steam engine, and heritage street. This is one of the best parts. The street is lined with houses, each with it's own view of the history of Clark County and Las Vegas through the different time period of each house. There us also a revived ghost town, but we ran out of time to see it! There is so much to see here, so go early! The people here were awesome, and according to the website they will do tours. Better yet all 9f this is $2 per adult and $1 per child or senior.
